Mia made this charcoal drawing of my grandfather, Antti. This is based on an old black and white photo of my grandfather and came out looking exactly like him. Awesome job, Mia!
A new painting from Mia, Inside out.
Mia’s art work was at the exhibit in the Cornish Playhouse hosted by Cornish College of the Arts. She had two pieces up. One was the Pair of Kings, color pencil drawing which won the Silver Key award. The other was the Global Thinker, charcoal drawing which got the honorable mention award. Here are couple of photos from the exhibit. The exhibit is up until January 25th.
Great job, Mia! Congratulations!
Here’s a video with some images of what was going on for us in 2014.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015!
Made some Finnish Christmas cookies and pastries with Mia. Joulutortut & piparkakut, Christmas tarts & gingerbread cookies. Gingerbread cookie dough was a bit too soft so they did not hold their shape quite right but the taste was right.
We made one batch of the Christmas tarts with ready made fillo dough because I was going to go the easy way. They tasted somewhat right but texture was way too dry. So then I thought WTF (“Winterly True Family Event”) needs my dough made from scratch. They in the picture looking and tasting so much more right and better.
